For more information on Offices click here for the relevant chapter of the TUC guide to health and safety "Hazards at Work

Offices can be hazardous workplaces but often the risks that office workers face are downplayed. Many non-fatal injuries to employees in the office-based industry are not reported, making official statistics unreliable. Office workers also suffer from occupational ill health, but ill-health statistics for office workers are often not available or again are an understatement of the true picture.

In addition, some offices or office buildings may be only one part of a workplace, attached to hospitals or schools. Office workers in this situation may share some of the health and safety problems of other workers.Many of the hazards that office workers face are dealt with in detail elsewhere in these pages.
